Music WITH Film
Actually its possible to watch the movie right here on this site and if you let the music run in the background you can come close to the original performance.

This piece is actually for 3 pianos. 2 pianos are recorded on the film soundtrack. Michael filled in the 3rd piano part live on stage.
Too bad we can't show the film here. The music and film really worked well together.
